Caterpillar H180Ds Hydraulic Hammer
January 14, 2010

The Caterpillar H180Ds hydraulic hammer’s piston and tool have been increased in size for a 15 percent increase in productivity” performance that sets the H180D s apart in its weight class. The hammer weighs 8,600 pounds (3900 kg) and is ideally matched to Cat 345C and 365C hydraulic excavators. A wide oil flow range accommodates comparably sized competitive machines. The Auto Shut Off (ASO) feature turns the hammer off when no material is present beneath it. ASO extends the reliability and durability of the hammer by reducing the high stress levels caused by blank firing. The heavy-duty suspension system significantly reduces shock loads transmitted to the machine during hammer operation to improve operator comfort and extend life of critical machine components.
